“The Adventurers” Finished!

19 04 2016

The baby quilt for my expected grandson, made with “The Adventurers” fabric is finished! Click here to read about the beginning of this project. You will find printer friendly instructions for making the quilt on the Patterns page.

DSCN7773Thanks for all your comments on which shade of blue would look nice for the sashing. At Loving Stitches, my local quilt shop, I found a blue spiral tone-on-tone in the same fabric line. Perfect! Echoing the subtle shapes in the sashing fabric, I quilted spirals all over the quilt with a muted light blue thread. Click on the picture detail to zoom in and see the quilting design as well as how I used some leftover strip-pieced patchwork in the binding.


Anchors Aweigh, Matey! Let the adventures begin!
